    About to pull the trigger on One-X or S3. Should I wait, and for what phone, and why?

    Thx!

    I think the One X+ is set to be announced during the HTC event in the next couple weeks, but it might be beyond that for an actual release date.

    I too am in the same boat, my debate is between the GNex, the S3, and the One X, or wait it out for Note 2, One X+, or a potential new Nexus phone
    for me, I guess it's what Sprint will have to offer in the coming months, but I feel like if I play the waiting game for a phone with newer, better specs, I will be waiting perpetually

    There's always going to be something bigger and better than what you have that's just around the corner. Get something that does what you need our want. I'm holding out for the Note 2 on Verizon. If they don't get it, I'll be happy with the GS3.

    That's essentially my point, I'm going to stick it out for the note 2 too, assuming the rumors of it coming to Sprint are true, unless the new nexus is out and available by then

    Depends what u currently have. And do you care about the spec race... If you currently have a sgs2 class android device and it's responsive then I would wait till next year if you want the bleeding edge a15 processors or quad core s4 pros. The one x and sgs3 is perfectly good enough at this point in time. I assume you are on at&t if you are looking to get the one x or sgs3.

    Things that are coming are the next nexus(es) in November. Nexus devices always get the latest Google Android updates. Other potential devices are Motorola/Intel android devices with medfield. They might be unique enough to warrant a look. There is that LG device with s4 pro and lte announcing next week along with the medfield smartphone by Moto/Intel. I expect ces to show off ti omap5 class smartphones. Oh and the HTC one x+ might have spec bumped internals. Your question is kind of open ended so more details on your needs would make things easier to talk to. Good luck! I'm itching to get a nexus device in the coming months.

    Wait for the next Nexus phone(s). Nexus devices run stock Android (none of those stupid manufacturer overlays), have official support from Google, and get instant updates for years, while other phones remain stuck with a year-old OS. Plus, the next Nexus will most likely be released on November 5, so it isn't too far away. Trust me, it'll be worth it.

    You know this does sound very appealing, but I'm on ATT.. Nexus always seems to only run on Verizon, correct?

    I don't know for sure, but it seems plausible as November 5 is the 5th anniversary of Android.

    Actually, you can get an unlocked Nexus that can run on any HSPA+ network, including AT&T. It's more expensive ($350 instead of $200) but it has all the updates guaranteed (Verizon seems to bee lagging on the updates for some reason).

    I think you should get one of those Walmart pre paid flip phones, due to the fact that you will be back on these forums complaining about your new android phone that doesn't do dishes or make you breakfast, if you get the flip phone, we would all agree that your complaints are valid! This is just a general post to all on these forums who inevitably will get on and get pissy about their new purchase (exception to all gs3 owners who think their sh!t doesn't stink) not ripping the op

    False

    HTC is going to announce a new device tomorrow (if it is an Android handset, it will most likely be the 5 inch Note competitor), and as many have already mentioned, the next Nexus is surely around the corner.

    That $350 is unlocked, no contract. The Verizon $200 locks you into a rather expensive carrier for 2 years
